Well, seeing as Olivia is now one month old, we better catch up on documenting the first two weeks of her life. Our lives sure have changed since she came into the world, but we are quick to agree that we would never go back to life without her. She is truly a joy to have and we look forward to every new day with our sweet little girl.
As further proof that Kelly ought to be a spokeswoman for Orbitz Gum, she looks amazing even after giving birth just minutes before taking these pictures. Way to go Kelly!
Olivia Jean Bingham: 7 lbs 4 oz, 21", born on April 30th, 2013 at 1:03 PM
And now, pictures of our amazing hospital visitors:
There should be pictures of Lori and Gayle here but we clearly dropped the ball and missed our photo opp. Bummer!
Brian insists on always putting Olivia's bunny in the car seat with her :)
Olivia No Bath no more! She actually doesn't mind bathing too much.
Relaxing with Grandma Lorna!
Hannah: "No no no, Olivia. You don't raise your right arm until we've finished the part about "tip me over and pour me out". You really are a newborn aren't you!"
Seriously guys, I spent all day at the tanning salon AND I just got my nails done. You're gonna need to be really careful when you unbuckle me. (Okay, really, we don't tan our baby. It's just the jaundice.)
Happy One Week Birthday, Olivia!
Olivia's first book: Grover and the Everything in the Whole Wide World Museum. According to Brian, it simply doesn't get much better than reading about Grover's hilarious mishaps in the "Things That Make You Slip and Fall Hall".
Please disregard the fact that this picture is upside down. This photograph is proof that Olivia is actually part wolverine. After a few days in her "E.T. Bed" she clawed her way through the cover simply by waving her arms and kicking her legs. Way to go Liv!
Karate kick to the face!
And now, Mother's Day 2013:
Why did we start our Mother's Day collection with a picture of Olivia and Brian?
This whole Mother's Day collection is still not making sense...
Okay, fine. I guess Kelly appears in this one :)
There we go! Kelly's very first Mother's Day with 13 day-old Olivia!
All the proud Mommas :)
Grandma and Grandpa Ward with all the grandbabies!
Hannah giving Olivia a big hug. This was when they realized that they were destined to become best friends (as predetermined by their mothers :) ).
